THINK CLEAN UP AUSTRALIA DAY IS A GREAT INITIATIVE? CHECK OUT THESE INNOVATORS.
This week, people all around the country took part in Clean Up Australia Day activities. It’s a day that has become Australia’s biggest community-based environmental event, based on the vision of one “average Australian bloke”. Ian Kiernan began the event after being a solo yachtsman and being shocked and appalled by the increasing amount of rubbish discarded in our precious oceans. This motivated Ian to take a stand by organising Clean Up Sydney Harbour Day in 1989. The event received a massive response from the public that one year later the event became nationwide with over 288,000 tonnes rubbish collected over the past 27 years.
